4 College Junior

Transportation: The night bus runs every day from 6pm to 12am and stops at all the local spots. It takes students home and to the grocery store. During the winter term it runs every morning 8am to 11am picking up students to bring them to class.

Transportation: Public transport in the US is s***. Bar Harbor is too small to require COA to provide

4 College Freshman

Transportation: We have a night bus that comes to the school and can drop you off at various places in town. They give you their number through email so you can contact them.

2 College Senior

Transportation: Feeling Stuck. Public buses are for the tourist season. When the season ends, they stop running. It becomes more difficult to get off the island without a car, or a friend without a car. Biking/walking will get you into town and some nearby locations.

In winter there is a day bus which picks up students from the street and it works if you have a cell phone (I don't).

It was quite difficult to get off the island sometimes as there's a lack of local transportation for most of the year. Nearest bus station to Portland/Boston is from Bangor. Bangor's about an hour away.
